I am guessing there is not a chance that AccuEQ will eq your subwoofers if it doesn't eq the main speakers. I have been looking at the 626 for a while to replace my old yamaha and was excited to see the 636 on the onkyo website. The 626 has the basic audyseey multieq it would still help eq the subs. Not to excited about 4k yet since there is not much content out there yet. What a bummer....
Did this show up in the mail yet? If so, how do you like it so far? For me, it is between this NR636 and the Pioneer VSX-1124 (although it doesn't look like it is avail yet).
Thanks for this info. I'm about to get this receiver as it's the only hdmi 2 available now and I can't wait unfortunately. Once question how is it for heat output. Does it seem warm or hot? Is it passive or does it have a fan. I think it's passive cooling so I'll probably stick a small fan on top to pull out the heat, I'm a big believer in cooling my equipment (alas my tower pc sounds like a small aircraft as a result though :) ).
Coolerguys has a nice 120mm AC low db fan for a pretty good price I see. If I didn't have lots of fans and old power supplies lying around I'd probably get one might anyway if I can't find a quiet enough fan. Interesting site thanks.
I read that 4mm plugs (as banana plugs are often called in Europe) don't always fit despite the moniker "4mm" maybe you could find a set of "thinner" 4mm plugs?
Edit: just remembered where I read that.
Interesting, just how many people are plugging banana plugs into electrical sockets I wonder? If they are that young there should be child protectors in all sockets. Oh well, the only real problem is making sure there are no stray wires to short the receiver and maybe looks. If they want to discourage it maybe they could do something a little more user friendly like maybe requiring a warning tag (yea I know in how many languages) or color coding or something. But even if they look similar single banana's are just that, one wire, who is going to plug a single one into a wall socket besides a young child?
I assume once you've set the video processing off it stays that way. Given the amount of processing all the 4k TV's do (well except the Seiki's which I gather are pretty much just scaling) you'd think this option would be off by default, but I'm sure Onkyo is proud of this feature and therefore it is on by default.
I personally don't like Logitech Harmony's (too fragile for one thing) and use an MC-20 universal (alas though they have not updated it in some years and it doesn't have Bluetooth just IR) macro's are easy to program and no need to go online every time you want to make a minor change. May have to break down and get a harmony with Bluetooth someday though. Glad the 636 uses IR. I'm used to having to teach it every time I get a new remote though. Of course if you are teaching your harmony now than the codes should be making it into the database.
Appreciate hearing about the likes and dislikes from everyone: helps so I won't be surprised when I get mine (should be next week yea!).
I was looking at the Yamahas but the two things (besides not being available yet) I noticed is only the most expensive ones have two HDMI outputs (yeah I could use a splitter but that's just one more device to have to put somewhere and adds more connectors which are always possible fail points) and that they don't seem to support HDCP 2.2, which I believe will be needed when UHD blue discs become available. Only one input with this but that's a lot better than none.
I'd call support if nobody has an answer here, there may be an adjustment or maybe a firmware fix is about to come out (or maybe you are the first with the problem it is new). I saw a problem posted like this for a different receiver and sub. Is the meantime you could put the sub on always on (waste of power of course and inconvenient to turn it off last thing at night). Only other thing I can think of off hand is to double check your cable connection (I'd unplug and re-plug both ends).
